  1. Pencils & Pens Sub-Category in Stationery Category

    I sell HB pencils, but there isn't a pencils category. My choices are Homeware > Office > Everything Else, or to hash it and do Cards & Stationery > Stationery & Bookmarks and just pick one so that people actually looking for stationery can find them.

    I feel like there should be a pencils and pens/writing implements category in Stationery. It's hard to predict what people are looking up when they're browsing categories (as opposed to searching 'pencil'). There are so many types of stationery as well, I feel like the category could be expanded.

    I know there's the Homewares…

  2. Sub Category for Dog Bandana

    I have to use handmade dog collars and I don't think it's helping me get found for my dog bandanas.

  3. larger thumbnails for photos, hard to see on a pc so even harder to see on a tablet etc

    The thumbnails are so very small, I understand they are to help pick pics but they could be made to be bigger, unless I have missed that facility.

  4. Auto drafting of half done listing page to stop loss of data

    I put info into listing and if I mistakenly move to another window for some info, a lot of the already entered info is gone, i.e. materials, colour, and photos. That must be a bug. Can we have it automatically go to draft, it would save a lot of time not having to re enter info and details.

  5. Ability to cross link our items

    It would be very useful to be able to cross link items. The limited description field and images mean that some item which I would have grouped, now have to be split but I still need the customer to know that the alternative option is available.

  6. More images per item, image linking and captions.

    I am finding it difficult to feature item details as well as colour options due to limited per item images. I have had to split some of my products to allow for the variations.
    Some of the items are very similar in colour and hard to discern without either the ability to caption images or better still, link an image to a variation as we do in Etsy.

  7. App Required!!!

    I can't believe that Folksy doesn't have an app. Needs one that can be used for both buying and selling

  8. Obvious feedback tab needed

    I've got a shop here and have no feedback, I've just purchased items and not been able to find the feedback tab to leave feedback - please make it obvious so that a buyer can find it without looking ( I've still not found it!)

  9. Pierced earrings returns

    Should have words to the the effect 'Please note that for hygiene reasons we are unable to refund pierced goods or cosmetics Unless faulty,' as how does the seller know if they've been worn? Can't re sell goods through due diligence, even online companies have this exclusion.

  10. free shipping banner on listings

    Hi - would it be possible to have a free shipping graphic on thumbnail/main listing photographs so that customers browsing can see straight away that the price includes shipping ?

    I remember Folksy saying that offering free shipping, even if you have included it in the price, can encourage buyers.

    thanks

  12. Stock Level in Variations

    Can we please have the ability to include stock levels in variations. We can include variations in price, but not the number of items available in each variation. Consequently if a particular item is sold out, it doesn’t reflect that in the listing.

  13. Link to Folksy interview for featured sellers.

    Would it be possible for previous featured sellers to have a link to their Folksy interview where the star is presently - ?

    It may help in promoting in yourself as you can share your processes etc, and people can find out more about the maker if they want to.

    thanks -x-

  14. How do I find my 'favourites' please?

    Difficult to find the favourites link (although I am using folksy via Instagram on small iPhone). Could be more obvious perhaps in your ''menu" have an obvious symbol for 'my favourites'. This might already exist. Just giving my feedback. 😂 This is an awesome website 🙌🙌 Love art myself and when I have more time in the future I'd love to get back into it x

  16. It would be useful if we could create a free postage code, rather than a discount code. That way we could introduce new buyers to our shops

    It would be useful if we could create a free postage code, rather than a discount code. Or even just a code that we could set the value of - a little bit like a gift voucher redeemed on Purchases.
    That way we could introduce new buyers to our shops with a free postage offer - or it could be given or used for people in our local area.

  17. IT would be useful if we could have a download to save of all of our listings in our shops.

    I would find it very useful if i could take a download of all of the listings in my shop. Would this be possible please?

  18. Environmental Statement

    I was wondering if there were any plans to have an environmental policy statement/section for shops? I would be keen to have this as a link in the top section of my shop, similar to the links for ‘Buying from me’ and ‘Privacy policy’.

    At the moment I’m listing some of my environmental standards in my ‘About’ section but as information that’s put there is freeform and individual to each seller, as a buyer I wouldn’t necessarily know to look there to get this kind of information. A brand’s environmental standards are certainly something that affect my purchase decisions and…

  20. The ability to use CSV files for bulk uploads of new inventory.

    Using a CSV file with all your data under sub headings allows you to upload all of your inventory in one upload rather than having to list all items individually and would save a ridiculous amount of time.
